“I don’t get blogging,” came the response.
Hmmm. Where do I take the conversation from here? I had wanted a question to indicate I’d peaked her interest, “Oh, really, tell me more? What about?”
Instead, I began fumbling and trying to explain blogging, “I’m sharing with the world my thoughts and experiences, sometimes I’m just ranting in a written, online format.”
Her scrunched nose, narrowed eyes, and slight back and forth head motion indicated uncertainty. Not to be deterred, I forged ahead.
“Yes, I’m writing specifically about a one-year project I’m doing: 52 Dates with Myself. Tighter scrunching of her eyes and nose. Still, I kept going.
“I’m dating myself for a year and writing about it.”
That’s when the pin came out and went straight for my balloon. “Doesn’t that kind of limit you from dating other people?”
For the past 18 hours or so, that question’s been rattling round my brain. I’ve begun ranting on paper. But I’d like to hear from you?
What are your thoughts on my friend’s question? How about sharing them below?
